A MEMBER of the Mothers’ Union at St Mary’s, Gomersal, has been ordained a deacon.

Sue Fisher worshipped at the church for many years before deciding to take the plunge and begin studying to become a deacon in the Birstall Deanery. She was ordained Deacon by the Bishop of Wakefield on Saturday July 2.

Church member Trees Fewster said: “Sue is a highly respected member of St Mary’s. Studying as a mature student does not come easy, and that is all the more reason of our admiration for her completing it. She will make a wonderful deacon.”
